The Skeleton Twins

Kristen Wiig & Bill Hader Dark Comedy Opens 9/26

"Heartfelt and uplifting...led by revelatory performances from Bill Hader and Kristen Wiig." – The Hollywood Reporter (read full review here)
The ties that bind can both nurture and drive us crazy, can affirm who we are or bring us to the edge of dysfunction. Family and its discontents are exactly the point of The Skeleton Twins, starring Saturday Night Live veterans Kristen Wiig (Bridesmaids) and Bill Hader (Adventureland), which begins its Miami Premiere run on Friday, September 26 at the Gables Cinema. In this sharply observed dark comedy, Wiig and Hader - twins estranged for over a decade - reunite after Hader attempts suicide. His turn at recovery in their childhood home, where Wiig still lives, in upstate New York sets off a series of revelations and reappraisals of their lives and of those around them - their fractured and neurotic families, lovers, ex-lovers, and more.   
Wiig and Hader are at the end of their ropes, living on opposite sides of the country. They are emotionally stunted thirty-somethings thrown back together and forced to face the reality of their lives and their somewhat dark family history. Wiig must re-examine her marriage to Luke Wilson (The Royal Tenenbaums) and her self-destructive tendencies. Hader finally takes steps to overcome the pain of an early heartbreak still casting its shadow over him from an affair he had with his former high school teacher played by Ty Burrell (Modern Family). The Skeleton Twins is an intimate portrait that is as moving as it is funny.
